I like having my Canadian passport but I don't like living in Canada that much. So, I don't.

Yeah, I know, I was wrong. We should be ashamed of Canadians who become well known in academic circles outside Canada. I mean really, he lived in the U.S and (OH MY GOD) the U.K. He is so un-Canadian. :P How can he compare himself to some guy who would just sell Canada to those "other" countries. :twisted:

Not just outside Canada, but in the USA, the single source of all the evil in the world, and where citizens attend secret underground meetings centered around the sacrificing of beavers and plotting the annexation of the True North Strong and Free.

YOu miss the point. It's not that he's well educated and well known outside of Canada, or that he was a Harvard professor. That's a plus. It's the fact he identified himself as both a Brit and an American. He even went so far as to call America his country. Doesn't really sound like the words of a true Canadian to me. THAT is where Iggy got burned. I probably would have voted for him if it wasn't for that line. I mean hell, one of my best friends since Jr. High is now a Harvard professor and it's not like I consider him to be un or non-Canadian. But that's also because he still considers himself to be Canadian.
Ask any of our expats in this forum if they consider themselves to be Canadian, or the nationality of the country they currently and temporarily live in.

And you are probably right. I never liked Iggy anyway and didn't think he would make a good leader in any way, but was pissed off (and here I vote NDP :roll: ) at the hatchet job done on him by Steve's minions. Even worst was the smear campaign against Dion, who was a good man who would have made a good PM. I am afraid that Steve has completely changed the spirit of politics in this country. God help him if the tables turn because it's going to be messy.

"Hidden agenda" "How scary is Harper?"

He learned from the best. The liberals. I'm pretty sure they already tried the hatchet thing on Harper. It's a big part of why it took so long for him to get a majority.

No, he got burned by a bunch of garbage-diving political snoops bent on finding any flippant, out-of-context phrase that could be twisted into an attack ad. He was made a pariah only to the mouthbreathers that lap up shit like attack ads. Iggy was never anywhere but on the higher road by comparison. It's not too late for our politicians to stop this childishness. I recall years ago watching American campaign attack ads on TV and saying to myself "I'm damn glad we're more mature in our politics in Canada." I'd like to see us regain our credibility and ban this nonesense outright.
